If nominations are due on 1 February, we are now tossing this thing around based on 2 weeks of work??

Or flowery speeches and hope over substantive accomplishment?

http://nobelprize.org/nomination/peace/process.html

Why does this come to mind?

ARTHUR: I am your king!
WOMAN: Well, I didn't vote for you.
ARTHUR: You don't vote for kings.
WOMAN: Well, 'ow did you become king then?
ARTHUR: The Lady of the Lake, [angels sing] her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [singing stops] That is why I am your king!
DENNIS: Listen -- strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
ARTHUR: Be quiet!
DENNIS: Well you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
ARTHUR: Shut up!
DENNIS: I mean, if I went around sayin' I was an empereror just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me they'd put me away!

Nice quote! It seems true what Dennis says. However, this was the system in the middle ages. There are loads of other sources on King Arthur who more or less say the same about the problem of legitimazation of kings - especially of King Arthur.
